So I made these the other week, and curry puffs at the same time for lunches.  Trent pulled the parmesan cups out of the oven while I was otherwise occupied (possibly child related) and he decided to try one straight from the muffin pan.

I had made dinner already (lamb shanks I believe) and he only requested a small portion.  Now, my husband doesn’t do ‘small’ portions, oh no.  I mean, you only have to look at his lovely keg to realise this (and honey, if you are reading this, I LOVE your keg — kiss kiss). I asked him why, and he sorted of mumbled.  I went into the kitchen and nearly ALL of the parmesan cups had been consumed.  A mere few crumbs remained.

Actually, about 6 remained, but I had originally made 12.

So, he took nearly all the them for crib the next day.  I’d say, that thats a WIN for Jessica.

So the recipe for this is quite simple.


  • Puff pastry
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Chicken
  • bacon
  • Passata
  • I also added herbs, because I can’t help myself.


  1. Just spray some olive oil into muffin tins.
  2. Cut your puff pastry into squares (to fit) the muffin holes
  3. Add your chicken (I used some leftover BBQ chook) you could use chicken snitzel or any chicken really — so long as it is cooked — into the pastry cups.
  4. You don’t have to fry up the bacon, but I did the second time around, you could use ham if you don’t have bacon.
  5. Then add your passata (a good tablespoon in each cup) and then your cheese (and herbs if you have them).
  6. Bang in the oven on high (I’d say 200) for about 15 minutes, or until you can see the edges of the pastry have gone brown and the cheese is lovely and bubbly.
  7. Enjoy!

Makes 12
